juvenile Copes grey treefrog Hyla chrysoscelis on rainbarrel
I passed one of the rainbarrels yesterday afternoon and glanced down to see this guy hanging out in the bare patch of sun that was breaking through the backyard trees. With this coloration, I have no doubts that this is a Copes grey treefrog (Hyla chrysoscelis,) and it was the same rainbarrel as this little spud (the one on the dime) so, same one, now sporting more adult coloration? I honestly can’t say – I didn’t have a dime handy to show comparative scale, but this one is roughly twice the size of the one in that post. And you’ll notice, it has no green on it at all, unlike the one seen here. They’re really not making my job easy, are they?
